Valentino Spring 08, the bag ladies Amber, Anja, Raquel and Shalom

It’s not about the models this spring summer 2008 for Valentino, they’re just there to hold up the designer bags (preferably over their faces), wear their shoes and model their clothes.

While it’s very effective, one does have to wonder why did they hire four fabulous models like Raquel Zimmermann, Anja Rubik, Shalom Harlow, and Amber Valetta and have them hide behind hair or bags?
